: welcome to "the daily show," my name is jon stewart. big show. big, big, big, big, big show. our guests tonight, we have on tonight's program pakistan's former president pervez musharraf. my guess is we'll have a delightful beverage and a lovely conversation. (cheers and applause) so let's begin tonight with the on going "news of the world" phone hacking scandal. to get you caught up, a seemingly simple story. ma and pa owned newspaper hacking into a murdered little girl's phone and... (laughter). ... paying the police to cover it up. has unfortunately turned ugly. (laughter) as of now, london's two top policemen at scotland yard let's call them officer blu rotton has resigned. andrew colton has been arrested and sunday tragically authorities arrested poor mrs. weasley. (laughter) wait, no that's not mrs. weasley. sorry, tragically, authorities arrested the guy from simply red. yeah, that's it. actually, arrested was rebekah brooks, the woman who ran "news of the world" during the worst of-- as the british call them-- the troubles. (laughter) brooks had already resigned her post friday,
in it that's pretty -- it's sort of outlined but not detailed in legislation and has a big, big dollar figure around it. so, sort of the big plan. passing that along with a debt ceiling as sort of a big theory option instead of this mcconnell/reid plan, but it's so vague, as you can tell, and nothing that i have as any sort of firm plan, just, like, something that's sort of out there in the ether, they just don't have a plan at this point, no one does, john. >> it sounds like, and some people at home are saying, my god, there they go into washington speak again. i'll try to simply phi it. they are trying to fit certain pieces together to get you to several trillion in deficit reduction and that seems to be where we are, a bunch ideas. i'll go over to the wall a little bit, because jess talks about the mcconnell plan, that would give the president the authority to raise the debt ceiling and maybe they would come up with a commission with spending cuts. that's one backup plan. another backup plan is the gang of six. and i want to bring up the gang of six yesterday we talked about that. they hav
. these are big proximate but we're a big country and we'll solve it. >> reporter: now, the main issue he's going to have to teal with is why he decided to hire andy colson who was later arrested as part of the investigation into the phone hacking. this is something that was brought up yesterday in the hearings and it turns out that his chief of staff actually warned the british police not to brief the prime minister on these phone hacking issues. lawmakers today are clearly going to try to get to the bottom of this as you can imagine from the opposition labor party. >> david cameron said he didn't know about this either. thanks so much. >> it's going to be hard to top the intensity of what happened yesterday. the theater of yesterday's phone hacking hearings. two hours after telling parliament it was the most hufble day of his life, rupert murdoch took a pie in the face. a 26-year-old man armed with a pie full of shaving cream nails rupert murdoch from behind saying you greedy billionaire and it didn't take long for murdoch's wife there, leapt to her husband's defense. she tried to clock the guy
. >> the proposal would have budget sate h savings of $500 million. -- $500 billion. also it calls for big changes to medicare and social security. >> i think at the end of the day, what the overwhelming majority of americans are saying, fix this. and if it takes a little compromise from both. >> but the is plan faces a harsh reality. tough procedural obstacles means the proposal won't be ready ahead of the august 2 debt ceiling deadline. and a key block of conservatives is already saying no way. >> we know it's going to hurt job creation. we know it's bad for small businesses. we're not going to go for this type of plan. >> with time running out, harry reid, who is still work on a fall back plan with mitch mcconnell says he's now waiting for a signal from house gop leaders. >> we have a plan to go forward over here, but until we hear from the house of representatives, we really are -- all of our work here would be for not. >> now there is also talk of folding elements of the gang of six plan into this so-called fallback plan being worked out between senators reid and senator mitch mcconnell. but
points of a plan-- no details. but what we can probably gather from this plan-- it has big tax increases in it and all the spending cuts will happen in the out years. well, how many times do politicians think they can pull that one over on the american people? >> reporter: the split among republicans made it difficult for party leaders to determine just what might pass the house. whatever it turns out to be, it still must be acceptable to senate democrats and ultimately to the president. this morning, the senate's majority leader democrat harry reid challenged house speaker john boehner to take matters in hand. >> right now, i'm at a point where we need to hear from the house of representatives. we've planned to go forward over here, but until we hear from the house all our work is for naught. i await word from the speaker. >> reporter: in the meantime, there's general agreement that translating the complex gang of six plan into legislation and votes before august second, is likely unrealistic. that could put the short-term emphasis back on a senate backup plan to let the president raise
. but there are two big things. most damaging of all, he was pressed several times on whether he had had any conversations with all of his various contacts and friends at rupert murdoch's company in the u.k. about a $12 billion attempt to buy out the reminder of bskyb, the big broadcaster over there. this was a deal that the british government has quasi-judicial authority to approve or deny. all he could say is he had no inappropriate conversations. he kept using that phrase. frankly, it didn't sound like the members of parliament really bought that line. the second thing, a really explosive claim, that someone in the senior government, a senior government official had been hacked and bugged while andy coulson was there. these kinds of allegations are -- they just keep cropping up every day and it doesn't look like this kind of statement or investigations are going to end any time soon. >> yeah, we could be early in the game at the moment. michael, i want to play some sound from yesterday's testimony, what we heard there in parliament. take a listen to this first. >> i don't know. i am now a
with the pie. [unintelligible] host: do you think that this is a big deal at all? in aer: in a way, yes, and a way, no. he is a nice man, but he is too old. it takes a man that this young to do something like that host: do you think you could run all of those companies? caller: me? i am a painter. host: i know. i have your painting in my office. caller: my wife is looking at me and telling me to tell you good morning. host: good morning. send me your e-mail address and i will send you a picture of it in profit -- in my office. caller: listen, my wife's birthday is tomorrow, she turned 81. host: that is right. you married an older woman. mr. peterson, you enjoy that heat wave in texas. we have got to get moving. we appreciate it. this would message, regarding the phone hacking scandal -- host: mike is a republican in arizona. hello. caller: i can see this going on in great britain, i guess the police are involved. but then they are doing it for us in the same manner. scanning e-mails, looking for certain words and what ever. i do not see any difference. i mean, they are exchanging inform
with my old company. saved a bunch. that's a reason to switch. big savings -- it's a good look for you. [ blower whirring ] [blower stops] the safety was off. out there with a better way. now, that's progressive. >>> casey anthony's free thanks in part to a team of lawyers and now there is word she wants to become a lawyer. according to florida television stationing wtsp in tampa, her attorney cheney mason says casey anthony told him when i get out i want to be a lawyer. i want to work in your office. he reportedly explained that is unrealistic since she has a record and said his main goal is to keep her safe. she has been in hiding since leaving the orange county jail in orlando last sunday 12 days after a jury akisted he acquitf murdering her daughter. >>> here in new york city the only wildlife we encounter of the rats and roaches. in india, the pests are little larger. wildlife workers shooting at a leopard that mauled 11 people in the eastern part of that country. the leopard clearly not keen on being captured. understandably considering people had been attacking it with knives an
members. one big gap with the military lending act is it does not apply to automobile financing, and one thing many young enlisted do when they get their paycheck is to try to purchase an automobile. i think also the protections should be expanded. veterans are not covered by the military spending act. older americans are not covered, and talking about checks and balances, we have businesses putting mandatory unilateral arbitration clauses in the contract, which allow consumers no redress if they are harmed by these high cost, unfair product set are leading them of their bank accounts, robbing them of vehicles, and taking their homes away, leaving them and their families without a place to live secure a good -- a place to live. >> in your testimony, you find a trade-off the sometimes arises between consumer protection and a profitability -- and bank profitability. can you talk about the trade-off and what influence it should have? >> of course. there is a balance of regulatory agencies are trying to strike between bank safety and soundness and consumer protection during debate safety and
for the hearts and minds of the people. >> big. there you go. >> the overriding goal of counterinsurgency is to make friends. you make friends with the people; you isolate the insurgents. go where the people are. go where the population is. go to the population centers. get in among the people, protect the people, isolate the insurgents. >> narrator: but according to those close to the military command, counterinsurgency also involves hunting down the enemy. ( shouting ) >> clear. >> let's go, let's go, let's go! >> counterinsurgency doctrine believes in killing people. it just believes in killing the right people. and what's happened over the past five years is we've gotten far, far better at correlating human intelligence and signals intelligence to paint a very tight, coherent picture of who the enemy is and where the enemy hangs his hat. and we've gotten better at using precision firepower to give those people very, very bad days. ( glass breaking ) and i really think that this is redefining what counterinsurgency means in the 21st century. ( explosion ) >> narrator: overseeing the co
company called two men with big hearts moving and storage. but he fell behind in his bills to this company. this storage company because of medical bills that had piled up for him. >> so he just passed away and the family is trying to figure out what they're going to do at the funeral and what they would like to do is get a hold of some of his military stuff, including his two purple hearts but the problem is that particular company is owed by the family $600. the family went over and talked to them and they knocked it down to $500. but nonetheless, they would like to have the stuff for the funeral next tuesday but they got to come up with $500. here's the son of the veteran. >> he was a very patriotic person. >> dad wanted to go out in a blaze of glory. that was on the back of the fire truck. something we want to give for dad. that was one of his last requests. >> he had it for five years. it would be thousands of dollars. don kennedy owns the company so he's not going to release the stuff as of right now unless they pay the $500 which is just -- they just want to get the -- they want t
to china town. >>> we learned today the devil slide tunnel project has hit a big snag. and now it appears the project has been delayed by more than a year. and tom vacar tells us why geology is to blame. >> reporter: richard lives in pacifica and he commutes every day through devil slide. >> the road does come down pretty often. we worry about the road closing. >> reporter: he was disappointed to learn today that the new devil slide tunnel scheduled to open later this year won't. much business comes his way across the slide expect in bad weather. >> our customers, obviously they get quite afraid when it rains and that will draw some people off. >> reporter: the problem, constantly changing conditions as boring goes forward. >> the wild card has been that those conditions changed more frequently than we thought. >> reporter: the problem with drilling through this earthquake ravaged country is sometimes you run into hard rock, sometimes you run into sand stone, and sometimes you run into mud or dirt. all of that slows the process down. >> normally you would plan on say maybe one month of b
. speaker, in this debate, let us not lose sight of the big picture. the people who send us here want some pretty straightforward things. they want their media free and punchy but they want them within the law. they want their police independent and strong but honest and incorruptible. and they want their politicians to sort out a mess that has socked their faith in the key institutions in our country. we should be clear today that we will not let them down. >> here, here! >> order, the question is this house have considered the matter of public confidence in the media and the police. mr. ed miliband. >> mr. speaker, i welcome this debate and i think in starting this debate all of us should remember what brings us here. because parliament would not have been recalled today if it had not been for the revelations by the hacking of millie doweler's phone. that revelation shocked our country and turned something that had seemed to be about the lives of politicians, footballers and celebrities into something very different. about the lives of others who never sought the public eye. and it is th
. it would be a new day here to get these bills rather than having some big omnibus bill. so this is a step in the right direction. again, i express my appreciation to the two managers of this legislation. as indicated, there will be no roll call votes today. more roll call votes today. tomorrow i'm going to move to proceed to the bill that we call the cut, cap bill received from the house today. under the rules of the senate, a cloture vote on the motion to proceed to the bill will occur on saturday. i expect a cloture vote sometime saturday before lunch time. i'm committed to allowing a fair and full debate on this bill. i want the proponents and opponents to have time to air their views. if proponents of the bill decide they would like to vote sooner, if they would let me know, i would appreciate that and we'll try to work something out. there may be efforts made to try to advance that vote by others but as far as i'm concerned, we should have a full and fair debate on this matter and i look forward to that. mr. mcconnell: mr. president, if i may? the presiding officer: the republican le
of dollars in subsidy. we can't even do this. where do we start? they say a big journey starts with a single step. we are not willing to take even in this small area the most modest of steps. hagerstown, maryland, north of here, 78 miles from the airport. getting a subsidy of over $800 per flight. it's right here baltimore as well. montana, 60 miles from another essential airport in montana, just 60 miles you could drive over to sydney, no, they are asking for $1,300, subsidy per passenger flying from glendive under this program. new mexico, 89 miles from a hub airport in el paso. if this continues, getting a $1,563 subsidy instead of driving 89 miles. you can rent a car. this is becoming -- this is a profligate hard to defend use of the taxpayers' money. yet people are talking about turning -- closing the government down or the f.a.a. down unless they can spend, $1,500 to subsidize a flight when you can drive 89 miles to another airport. this is what we are talking about. this is why my constituents and many others are wondering when we are going to get serious out here about taking the mod
retired person knows inflation is the big gorilla in the closet for us. so that denied me the ability to do what i could have done and what my sister could do is to build up that asset until she was 70 1/2. >> i think as you have testified just to complete your story, the practical consequences extended to the family medical leave act, survivors benefits, very practical, sizeable consequences to you because of doma which wouldn't have otherwise existed even though under connecticut law you were lawfully married? >> that's right. >> thank you, mr. chairman. >> is there anyone i can yield to? [laughter] thank you very much, mr. chair, and thanks to the witnesses who are here today. there are events in the life of a senator that are memorable and one of those that comes to my mind was attending the bill signing ceremony where president obama signed the law which repealed don't-ask, don't-tell. it was a day of great celebration and relief. the rabbi who gave the invocation that day, i remember his words, said, "when you look into the eyes of another person, if you don't see the face of go
the big lobbyists who make hundreds of thousands a year, $560 a year or or $1,000 a year may not seem like a lot of money, but if you are a senior trying to get by on on $14,000, $15,000, $18,000 a year and you're 85 years old, the end of your life, you're totally vulnerable, you're sick, sick, $1,000 a year cut in what you otherwise would have received is a major, major blow. so i congratulate senator coburn, senator crapo, senator chambliss for doing what president obama said would not happen under his watch, what the democrats have said would not happen under their watch, major cuts in social security. but it's not just social security. we have 50 million americans today who have no health insurance at all. under the gang of six proposal, there will be cuts in medicare over a ten-year period of almost almost $300 billion. there will be massive cuts in medicaid and other health care programs. there will be caps on spending, which mean that there will be major cuts in education if you are a working class family, hoping that you're going to be able to send your kid to college and that you
